Russell Hantz and Dick Donato on Amazing Race? Oh no

Survivor spoiler Russell Hantz suggested last night that he’s training for The Amazing Race with Big Brother star “Evel Dick” Donato. This is, we hope and pray to whatever gods we can find to pray to, a terrible joke, although it’s not like The Amazing Race can get any worse.

The two interact on- and offline (reality stars are inducted into an incestuous fraternity after their show airs), and Russell actually first mentioned this possibility back in November. But it was his late Monday tweet that inspired excitement (from masochistic people who hate their lives) and horror (from people with brains). He wrote, “Good workout today need to get ready for me and my boy @EvelDick on amazing race @CBS”

Although it basically says they are training to be on the show, tagging CBS at the end of the tweet seems to be a giveaway that this is a dream rather than reality: it’s asking for attention from the network rather than stating a fact CBS probably wouldn’t be that thrilled with a future cast member saying publicly. Then again, it’s not like CBS cares what Russell Hantz does.
